Another quick and easy make! Featuring our popular sterling silver whale tail charm with bail, which can be easily attached to your favourite chain. We've used our satellite chain as we love how it adds a little more detail to this minimal and modern necklace.

Go minimal with briolettes
We love the pop of colour of these aqua blue chalcedony briolette beads! They're also faceted, which makes them sparkle beautifully in the light. We've created a simple design by wire wrapping the bead using sterling silver wire and hung on earwires - follow our tutorial on how to wire wrap a briolette here.
